If you click on this picture and look closely at Josiah's face you will see a bit of a stricken expression. I took this as they were coming around one of the times. David said he had his hands gripping on the handlebar the whole time! No hands in the air for this boy!
Here is Josiah on the first ride that he chose to go on, this car envoy deal. Later on, we had him go on the bumper cars, but he couldn't get the concept of keeping his foot DOWN on the pedal and so pretty much was stuck in one spot the whole time. He kept pumping his foot and it would inch forward ever so slightly here and there and then he would run into another car and get stuck. After this, my camera battery died....booo! Another highlight though was that we all rode the gondola ride (AKA Ferris wheels for families) and got to see all the sights of the area from way up high. As for the actual "Bite of Seattle" we had to quickly pick a place to eat as I was starving by the time we got to the actual site. We chose a fish and chips place as that seemed the easiest place to get to in the crowd, though if I could have spent more time choosing I would have enjoyed a Mexican place or a Thai place. It was just too hard to find everything as it was spaced out in a weird way it seemed to me. We went to the Taste of Tacoma a couple of years ago and it seemed it was much easier to find the food booths and that it seemed there were more of them. Oh well...the overall experience was good and once we got our food we sat on a nice shady spot and laid out our towel and ate. Afterward, David went and got us some ice cream at the booth near by as well.
As a funny side note, my comment at one point was, "Why are all these people around here wearing neon green XBox 360 shirts?" My husband kindly pointed out that those were Sounders shirts...well, in my defense, I knew they had neon green as one of their colors, but I thought perhaps there would be the word "Sounders" somewhere on the attire instead of an ad for a gaming system? Um...yeah, I don't really know much about soccer, you can all laugh. :)
